Michael Stewart drools over 'unstoppable' duo in Rangers win v Hibernian
Steven Gerrard will no doubt have come away from Easter Road on Friday night with a real feeling of satisfaction for his Rangers side.
The Gers dominated from the early stages in a comfortable 3-0 win over Hibernian, and were out of sight by the eighth minute after Joe Aribo combined well with Ryan Jack to double his team’s lead, following Ryan Kent’s opener.
And it’s fair to say that Michael Stewart was impressed by what he saw.
Speaking on Sportscene over the weekend, the pundit said: “When you look at that second goal in particular, if you look at the one touch interchange between Aribo and Jack, at times it’s almost unstoppable.”
This is no exaggeration from Stewart either.
There were times when we were treated to an attacking masterclass from Gerrard’s men, with the movement and crispness of passing leaving Hobs chasing shadows.
Aribo was a key orchestrator for much of it, but just as impressive was how clearly the rest of the forward line were operating on the same wavelength throughout.
This was a comprehensive display from a side who look to be getting more and more comfortable with each other as the weeks go by, and let’s not forget, it was all done without Alfredo Morelos.
